nuvo_logoAt NuVo we believe in music. It is our commitment to bring the most innovative, highest quality music experience into as many homes as possible at an affordable price. Amplification systems like ours have been available for some time, but only to the extremely high-end client (with an equally extreme price tag). At NuVo we believe that music is for everyone, and having it in the home in this way is a must. Much of what makes this perfect balance of high quality and maximum affordability is that we do this by bringing together the best possible engineering talent and the most efficient manufacturing that can be obtained. Many of our engineers also have strong music industry backgrounds, giving them a unique sensitivity to sound quality that is just not present at many electronics companies. We pride ourselves on creating audio solutions that experts like these would have in their homes. For more information please visit www.nuvotechnologies.com.
